Editor's review

Another welcome arrival in one of our favourite parts of town - the ever-evolving Karmelicka street. Drop in for some oven-baked pizza in a smooth and sultry setting. This is the kind of place that would be equally good for either a date or a casual evening with a bunch of friends. Besides the pizza and pasta, you can also take your pick from some meat and fishes dishes, as well as a range of salads. Pretty soon Karmelicka will be as ... as it was in the 1930's.

Don't go there if you are black , we had booked a table a week early For two people through an email. When we turned up they moved us to the very back at a table for 4 non reserved next to the toilet. Waiter most unfriendly and could not wait to get rid of us

Try the pizza with parma ham - an excellent choice. Also the spaghetti carbonara is delicious. Always a good choice to eat in central Krakow. They also do quite a good breakfast as well...

First class pizza. Service was efficient, if rather u.nsmiling

Henry from United Kingdom Reply Sep 13th, 2013

Disappointingly small portions and very slow service (we waited exactly 40 minutes for the meal to arrive and there was not a huge crowd by any means). The food itself was very good indeed, but the portion was suitable for a starter and not a main course. It's now an hour later and I am already hungry. They really need to stop skimping in this way, as the dishes are not cheap. We paid 66 PLN for two main courses and soft drinks.

Jennifer from United Kingdom Reply Aug 21st, 2013

A brilliant restaurant - super, fresh food, helpful staff, reasonable prices, decent portions. What more do I need to add?

Emil from Poland Reply Mar 6th, 2013

Wonderful place. A true Italian atmosphere, ideal for a romantic dinner :) I haven't eaten better pizza anywhere else in Cracow! Higly recommend. But, like others said - it's hard to get a table, so remember about booking!

Katie from United Kingdom Reply Feb 11th, 2013

This place is really good but often hard to get a table! Book first!

Gosia from Poland Reply Feb 11th, 2013

Very delicious italian style pizza! A nice place for lunch or an evening with friends. Friendly interior and staff. Awesome!

aga from Poland Reply Jan 29th, 2013

The best pizza in Old Town! But it's good to remember about booking a table - especially during the weekends.

Lynda Bates from United Kingdom Reply Mar 17th, 2012

Ate here for three out of four nights whilst staying in Kracow in March. The food, atmosphere and service were brilliant. It was so busy every evening, even during the week, that on the Thursday night we had to book earlier in the day for a table. Each time we were the only English in the restaurant but all the waitresses spoke perfect English and the service was great. The food was excellent and so reasonable and would recommend it to anyone who loves huge delicious pizzas and pasta dishes

Dave Whitehill from United States Reply Mar 15th, 2011

I went here on the weekend just past. There are 2 parts of the restaurant - the cafe part and the fancier restaurant part also with outdoor but covered seating in the courtyard. The seem to be a suspiciously high number of 10/10s here, which are probably sponsored - my rating includes this to redress the balance. The food is average and the service is what you'd expect from a 1950s state controlled soviet bloc restaurant run by Stalin - no manners or charm. You'd imagine some of the people who work here would be better suited to pulling heads off chicken in an abattoir.

adam from United Kingdom Reply Feb 19th, 2011

We went here in October 2009 and I have to say it was great value. A nice little italian just on Karmelika street. The tomato soup was fantastic and the pizza was huge and tasty. Great value two course meal each and a couple of drinks for about £12 in total. You really cannot go wrong in Krakow.

Maria from Sweden Reply Nov 28th, 2010

I live in Krakow and have been to Mamma Mia several times. I love the food there, but as in the rest of the city the customer service and manners is awful. Polish people really suck at it!!

Kabir from Poland Reply Nov 20th, 2010

went on sunday and it was absolutely heaving...many customers were being sent away because no tables free Great pizzas and very friendly service.perfect for kids

Viola from Poland Reply Nov 7th, 2010

Used to go to this place all the time as is only 5 minutes walk. The food used to be quite good but has become consistently worse and worse but what really brings it down is the service, as pointed out by a number of reviews already listed. It is very close to the Soprano, where the food is much better and there is service with a smile rather than a grimace.

Peter from United Kingdom Reply Aug 22nd, 2010

Being a resident of Krakow for several years, I have endured the poor service every time someone else has suggested eating at Mamma Mia. Lee’s review below “...the welcome the waitress gave me was about as warm as a penguin with hypothermia” is about right. I turned up for a late lunch at 3pm in August and needed a table outside because I’d forgotten to bring the lock for my bicycle and needed to keep a close eye on it. We asked the waitress, Kamila Sgozara, to give us the next table that came free, and patiently waited, very visibly, to one side. 25 minutes later we were still waiting and I saw an outside table for 2 be given to one person on their own. We went up to ask Kamila the waitress, and she told us “the person who was sitting there before knew the lady and gave the table to her”. This turned out be a bare faced lie. No offer was made to ask the person to wait for the next table, and no apology was offered. An example of appalling service, appalling waitressing and bad manners. It’s important for tourists visiting Krakow to vote with their feet in establishments that offer the very worst service, in a city where good restaurant service is very rare.

Sam Troughton from United Kingdom Reply Feb 25th, 2010

The pizzas were so authentic that I thought that the owners/chef must be Italian. Was surprised to find out that that's not the case. Chocolate cake also excellent. If only the restaurants that served Polish food cooked this well...!

Kelly from United Kingdom Reply Feb 6th, 2010

Really nice place, Pizza is good

Chris K. from United Kingdom Reply Jan 29th, 2010

Was tipped off about this one and the pizzas lived up the expectations. Clearly popular. Polite service, and above all, delicious food. Not horribly expensive.

Maya from France Reply Jan 3rd, 2010

Somehow it was not as good as before... But still ok.

Coleen from Ireland Reply Oct 27th, 2009

Top restaurant highly recommend a visit but make sure you head down the alley to the courtyard better atmosphere than the cafe!

Boggar from United Kingdom Reply Aug 6th, 2009

Fantastic food went twice in 4days excellent pizzas/pastas peroni on tap £1.40 a pint!!

Lee from United Kingdom Reply May 30th, 2009

Visited this place after reading the excellent reviews on this website. When/if you go there is an inside restaurant to the left and an alley on the right leading to a courtyard dining area. The courtyard was full when i went so opted for the inside restaurant and to be frank i wish i hadn't bothered. The service was ok but the welcome the waitress gave me was about as warm as a penguin with hypothermia. The starters took 20 minutes and they were only Bruschetta!! The main courses were ok but not excellent. maybe they were having an off day but i wouldn't recommend it.

Mart & Sar from United Kingdom Reply May 20th, 2009

Hadn't noticed this one on the website before going, but it was GREAT! We ate there twice on a 3 night stay. Loved the food, the servings, the friendly service, the decor/setting. Very pleased to find it :o)

Mike from Ireland Reply Apr 23rd, 2009

Yeah, definitely worth a visit. Number one on tripadvisor! Can't go wrong.

shennabob from Ireland Reply Jan 6th, 2009

Fiona from United Kingdom Reply Nov 3rd, 2008

Paul from United Kingdom Reply Oct 11th, 2008

Was a very nice meal... pizzas are yummy. good friendly service... recommend

Matt from United Kingdom Reply Feb 25th, 2008

I ate at this restaurant and i can say that it was probably the best meal i had in Krakow. Very reasonably prices. About 30 Zt (£6) for the most expensive pizza. Would recommend.

Misia from Japan Reply Nov 23rd, 2007

I love this restaurant. I tasted several Italian restaurant in Krakow and I bet this one is the best. The price is good and the quality is very good.

Renata Ranaldi from United States Reply Aug 9th, 2007

I just forgot to change the rating in my previous review. I definitively give this place a 10! but they only go up to 5 shoot!

Renata Ranaldi from United States Reply Aug 6th, 2007

Wow is small of a word. My complements to the owner, for this fine establishment. I have visited Poland several times, and I am afraid of ordering foreign dishes there, but I must say this place is as close to Italian as they get. Thank you for feeding me so well. Also complements to the English speaking staff. Smacznego!

chiara from Italy Reply May 23rd, 2007

good pizza, and generally a nice place to eat. Makes feel at home ;)

gosia from Poland Reply Jan 6th, 2007

really good food and nice interiors, different from other "italian" places in krk- no cheesy landscapes on the walls :-)

Richard and Liz from United Kingdom Reply Dec 9th, 2006

Excellant Oven baked pizza's. Staff really nice and friendly visited for Lunch and were so impressed we went back a few days later for a meal. Both visits were first class.
